Super Hume is a concentrated form of humic acid with added seaweed extract and a proven bio-stimulant. When applied to soils, Super Hume stimulates the uptake of fertilizers and micronutrients, promotes vigorous plant growth, and stimulates the soil microbial activity. Super Hume will improve water movement and water holding capacity. Humic acids are a proven performer, especially when dealing with difficult problems in the soil, such as nutrient imbalances.
- Derived from high quality Leonardite shale
- Improves the supply and translocation of plant nutrients
- Increases availability and absorption of soil nutrients
- Prolongs the release of inorganic fertilizers
- Contributes to more vigorous plant growth
- Promotes a healthier/stronger root system
- Better plant appearance an color
- Increases cell permeability
Super-Hume and Your Soil
The importance of humus, humic acids, and humates has long been recognized, but only recently has the agricultural industry recognized the true benefits of these compounds. Soils that have been over-cropped, abused, and depleted of organic matter and other essential elements can be highly improved through the use of these compounds. The fertilizer industry is beginning to recognize more and more the importance of maintaining the humic acid content in the soil to promote crop production.
Humic Acid in Super-Hume
The humic acid in Super-Hume can contribute to increased fertilizer utilization. When used in combination, Super-Hume forms a protective bond with the fertilizer and helps prevent rapid “tie-up” of ions in the soil. This helps more of the fertilizer’s nutrients and minerals into the plant. This is accomplished through Super-Hume increasing the cation exchange capacity. The humic acids in Super-Hume also break the ionic bonds of insoluble iron phosphate and calcium phosphate molecules in the soil, making their individual elements available for plant growth.
